Well Christmas came and went too fast as it always does. The kids had a blast! We just finished up the third Christmas celebration. We have been at my mom and dad's house since Christmas day(in the afternoon). Z went back to our house on Sunday and I have been spending time here ever since, as is the tradition goes.The kids enjoy time with their Gannie and Papa! This year was great! The older three kids really get it and the excitement upon Santa arriving is AMAZING to watch. Baby Q gets excited and is all smiles because he feeds of them. So, that made this years Christmas so heart-warming and memorable. I know that time is slipping away each day and there will come a time that none of them will believe in "The big Man in red". I dread that day. Because of that, this year I immersed myself in all the season had to offer. We watched every Christmas kids movie made(I think), made Christmas cookies, saw him several times, visited live reindeer, went on the polar express and drank hot chocolate, went sledding, made snowmen(and one snow girl), and even had Santa send them an e-mail. He called the house several time(thanks guys) and wrote him several letters. I already miss the anticipation.... but at least I enjoyed it! I hope you all had a magical Christmas and dive into the new year with reckless abandon as these precious years are so few numbered! Happy New year from my crazy family to yours! Enjoy the pictures of memory lane!!!!

Yesterday was Boomer and Tank's first trip to the dentist! They were so nervous the days before the visit! Boomer had just watched Finding Nemo and I had forgotten that there is a mean dentist in the movie. She kept asking "how many teeth are they gonna take out?"! Oh Boomer! I had to an appointment planned that all three big kids would go at the same time. 10:20. Not too early, not too close to lunch or too late for Baby Q's nap! Sounded like a great idea at the time so that I wouldn't have to return three times to get them all in. So, yesterday morning I got an unexpected call from my old great friend, Julie. She asked to come along. This could not have been better! I have no idea what I would have done without her help with Q! I needed to be in all three rooms at the same time since Boomer and Tank had never gone before! This was also Ace's first time at this office. Once we got there and I was filling out paperwork(times 3) Baby Q decided to bite Tank on the finger. This caused loud crying(as expected) from Tank and Q(since I yelled at him). He melted on the floor and once again Julie swoops in for the rescue! She held Q while Tank was called back. This is when the whirlwind began. So many teeth so little time! All three where scrubbed, dyed,picked,polished,flossed and had a dose of fluoride within 40 minutes! My head was spinning after that and the prize selection began for all four(Q received one too!). The day had just began........
Taking it all in!
